Puto Flan Recipe

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of pictures of puto flan posted online and I got curious. Puto + leche flan? Why not? Puto and leche flan are Filipinos’ favorite delicacy and dessert. Puto is a steamed rice cake while leche flan (also known as custard) is a milk and egg-based dessert . When combined, the result is heaven. For those who want to try this heavenly dessert, below is the recipe that was shared to me by a friend who bakes heavenly goodies.
